Anemia is a deficiency of (RBC) Red Blood Cells OR less than normal amount of (Hgb) hemoglobin.

Anemia is determined through a CBC blood test which includes the RBC, Hgb and Hct. If these fall below range on lab values (which is usually 12 at the low end), then you are considered to be anemic. 12 Hgb would be low end of normal and 14 Hgb being optimal for females and 15 high. I would think that very low values would be considered quite anemic.

Severity of anemia is as follows:
Hgb range
Grade 1 mild 10.0
Grade 2 moderate 8-10
Grade 3 serious/severe 6.5-7.9 This is the stage that they give you blood transfusions usually below 7.
Grade 4 life threatening <6.5
